I love old castles and this is one of the most wonderful medieval castles I have ever seen. It was built by the Normans and the architecture is fantastic. It originally was surrounded by the sea. Today the moat is dry and the sea is a short distance away. I felt they have tried to maintain the integrity of the original structure and It is interesting to wander around inside and imagine what it was like hundreds of years ago. It is beautiful and in very good condition. There are some interesting stone coats of arms in the courtyard. Visit the very top of the castle for fabulous views and also to see the structures that were built there so the locals could witness beheadings. The castle is still used today for city events and a museum but no beheadings!. I think any castle buff will enjoy visiting this gem.
